Back before I moved into controls and was an hvac service tech I worked at a large mechanical contractor company here. At that company most of the sheet metal guys were in the sheet metal union. By the time I left that company most of them had dumped the union. That particular union gave them nothing. The guys not in the union had drastically better benefits and the pay was the same. The union guys payed more in union dues than we paid for our insurance and their union did not give them nothing more than major medical coverage. They also had no vacation or sick time but us non union guys did. They were paying more to get less.

This recession won't be over until we raise a generation that knows how to live on what they’ve got.
